R.I.C. Featured Artist - Jesse Smith!

Jesse’s goal has always been to translate his skewed perspective of the world onto paper, canvas, concrete or skin. He pulls from his history as a graffiti artist with its bent perspectives, tweaked angles and explosive color, now incorporating those concepts into a wider range of media. His overall intent is to produce an analogical mirror of situations that we, as individuals and a country, are faced with on a regular basis.  He attempts to do so by putting random, rather innocent looking characters into those situations, ever intent on conveying a serious message in a creative, rather lighthearted way.

Also visit Jesse’s shop and gallery, Loose Screw Tattoo and Glitch Gallery, where he is a founding member and works with several other talented artists.
